Arsenal only make a profit because they sell players every year. That's not completely true, but Arsenal also aren't spending vast amounts on a single player, which saves money.
Did you know that Chelsea made a profit for last fiscal year? Of course, that doesn't include the purchases of Hazard or Oscar. :P
They haven't won a trophy in years, but they maintain CL spots every season, make stars for other clubs to buy () and play some very good football most times. Wenger is a boss
Chelsea doesn't deserve to be winning right now! Benfica so far has been overall better!

It's our win!
I am not a Benfica supporter, i support Porto. I just wanted them to win, and i think overall if anyone had to win it would be Benfica. At the first half, they were clearly superior. Second Half was a lot more disputed, but still ... i think Benfica was better, and they should had won.

Benfica is prolly gonna loose the League when no one thought that would be the case, they know lost the Europe League. They still have their chances for the Portugal's Cup. But last 2 games, they lost them at the last minutes (Porto and now Chelsea). Must be really frustrating!
Ah, all right.
In the first half, Benfica were better and our players looked really tired. In the second half, we played better and deserved to win.
Yeah, Benfica are going to lose the league as well. I don't know if they'll be up for the Portuguese Cup at this rate.
At the end of the day Chelsea won, jorped. Benfica was really bad at taking their chances, Chelsea were better. Also yeah, it's probably a very sad moment to be a Benfica fan.
Right, so we became the fourth club to collect the complete set of European trophies.
Now think about this one and have a laugh.

benfica was superior in this game,also in the 2nd half and they "deserved to win" (cuz u never can say the winner didnt deserve it)
like DD said,they sucked at taking their chances,while chelsea like in last years CL competition were ice-cold in the offense,which makes it a deserved title/win
still they play an ugly football and let themselves be dominated by most top-teams,which shouldnt be a way a team like chelsea should play
The whole concept of the cup is stupid "oh, you weren't as good as the top teams and failed terribly in the Champions League? ok, take a chance to win a cup"
This season's Europa League Final featured two clubs who had dropped out of the CL in the group stages.
